Keeping heating costs at a minimum is as much about keeping your heater operating efficiently as it is using your thermostat wisely. Preventative maintenance of your heating unit is key!
The first thing you can do to keep your furnace running well is to change out the filter regularly. Filters are inexpensive and available at your home improvement store. They should be replaced several times a year.
Cut the power source to the furnace, then clean the furnace body and the blower blades to help it run efficiently. You can also inspect the other components of the furnace at this time for any parts, such as the belt, that looks worn or broken.
Use a cloth to clean out the grills to keep it clear. Also take a look at the draft hood and make sure it is clear so that dangerous gasses can’t build up.Contact Us

Your AC system has two condensation drains. The primary one should flow continuously when your system is running normal, but can become clogged. When this happens, the secondary drain kicks in. This is typically a PVC pipe just barely sticking out over a window seal. If you notice water dripping from here, you should immediately address your AC system before it causes major water damage!
Make sure to change your filters monthly so that your system can function correctly. By doing this, you can extend the life of your furnace, improve your indoor air quality, and reduce your energy bills!
Is your HVAC system 10 years old or older? That’s usually when you begin to see problems and notice the system performance to decline. An older system that isn’t running efficiently anymore can cause costly energy bills.
Winterize your home – you’ll be happy you did! By insulating exposed and shallow water pipes, it can prevent bursting pipes when freezing weather hits.
If you have cast iron drain pipes in your home or business, don’t waste your money on pouring drain cleaners down the drain! Cast iron pipes corrode and close up over time. Until you replace your old cast iron drains, its best to have them cleaned with a sewer machine.
